and I found this interesting on a disussion about Windows 8 and Xbox 1..

Now that we know it will be $499.99, do you think it's too much and are you going to buy one ?

Not believing it as some end-all fact, however the price would seem pretty nice.
That said, I thought the entry level-with 2 year commitment-bundle would've been available.
Sadly tech prices don't do currency conversions. 500 usd would be less than 400€, at which price I wouldn't even think twice, but it's gonna be just USD = euro, thus at least 500€ :P

Go back pre-iPad and I think people would see $500 dollars and go OMG!!!
The iPad has changed people's perception of a $500 consumer device and I don't think there will be any major shock. People will just go, "It goes as much as an iPad.""Engineering is more than just the number of megapixels." - Stephen Elop

I personally think that $500 is too good to be true. I will be extremely happy if the new consoles are $700 or under. If they are $700-800, I will not be disappointed at all.
If you bought an Xbox 360 or PS3 when they released, complaining about a $500-$600 Xbox One or PS4 makes you a hypocrite. :)

It would be really interesting to see if MS goes with the subscription model for the XO launch. I'll probably only buy one next-gen system this fall but I might consider a subscription because that would free up funds for a PS4."Engineering is more than just the number of megapixels." - Stephen Elop

I really hope we're seeing one of those (initially) cheaper subscription model X1's, as that would definitely make it easier for me to afford one as well and I'm sure theres a crapton of people who think the same.

In America we undervalue the price of our smartphones because of carrier subsidies. I think people would lose their marbles if they had to pay $650 for an unlocked Galaxy S4 or $700 for an HTC One."Engineering is more than just the number of megapixels." - Stephen Elop

It's pretty funny to see when someone breaks their iPhone 5 (I know someone who went through this) and said no way to insurance when he got the phone (quote from him "Not worth it") and when walked in, while in contract and tried to get another one, Yep $599.99 and they would not budge on price any bit. He's now sporting a old Windows Mobile device (what he had sitting around) and knows the value of that $6 a month now.... All it takes is one time..
The Xbox One, if this price is right, is right in line where I thought it would be. Xbox 360 was $399.99 new, PS3 was $599.99....I bet the PS4 is released right around the same price or a little more... IF they release a $600-700 console, they will be in the same boat as they were before, too much money for most people and the reason why the 360 sold better...or in the price case, the Wii ($249.99)

I think ~500 is where they need to be with The One.... Although I can't help but feel it will more than that when you consider the Kinect.
Anyhow, it's going to be fun watching MS' E3 press event on June 10 @ 12:30PM EDT (11:30 PM for me, so I can watch on my lunch break).
Edit, Corrected the time!
